Caraway is a biennial plant that will only produce its anise-flavoured seed in the second year, but meanwhile, you can use the fresh leaves in salads. It looks very like a carrot plant, but it will go dormant in winter. Leave it undisturbed to get your harvest of caraway seeds next growing season. Sow it every year, and you’ll have a constant supply of seeds. Use it as a spice or medicinally for minor ailments including indigestion, coughs and colds, and as a gargle for sore throat.

  • Growing Information

    How to Sow

    Sow caraway where it is to grow to avoid hurting the tap root at transplanting. If you sow it in containers, transplant it while it is young. Scatter the seeds and cover lightly with soil. Germination is uneven, and as a biennial, a little slower than most annual species. Provide ample moisture during germination, reducing watering as the young plants gain vigour.

    How to Harvest

    Snip off fresh leaves as a salad green during its growing seasons. When the seeds turn a warm brown, you can snip off the umbels and dry them in a paper bag. Uproot the tap root and eat it as a root vegetable.
